When, after some time bread was baked, cakes were made of oatmeal mixed with water and baked on a griddle. The griddle was a flat piece of iron with two handles. The bread was terrible hard but it seems to have served their teeth for out ancestors took sets of beautiful sound white teeth to the grave.Mrs Loughman told me also that she knew a woman who broke stones and her wages for this was four pence a day. With this she bought Indian meal.
